About the author:
Peggy Ullman Bell wrote the first polished draft of SAPPHO SINGS during her senior year at the University of Tulsa, Class of '77, where she was founding president of the Oklahoma Delta Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu. When asked why it took so long to get from first draft to publication, Ms. Bell smiled and said, "It takes a long time for an ancient culture to become a worthy tourist attraction."

Currently a widow, Ms. Bell resides in Delaware, Ohio. "But, I live in cyberspace." she explains in sultry southern tones.

Sappho Sings
 

Authored by Peggy Ullman Bell

Here SAPPHO SINGS in her own words. Ancient phrases become the warp and weave of an intricate tapestry so delicately woven it becomes impossible to distinguish the imported threads from the weaver's own.

Readers familiar with the myriad translations of the few fragmented lines of Sappho's work left available to us may recognize a word here or a conjunct there but, as one renowned expert in antiquities discovered, the author has herself become the voice of The Poetess to the extent that invented passages read like newly discovered wonders from the past.
